Android 7.0 Nougat is now officially up and running and with this in mind, Android users are eager to know whether the current devices they are rocking will receive this latest dessert from Google.
This desire to know if their Android devices will be updated to the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS does not just end there, but these people also want to know when exactly this update will hit their devices. One problem with this situation is that responsible parties rarely come out with a satisfying answer, especially when looking at the huge fragmentation in the Android world.
Despite all odds, T-Mobile has moved ahead of the pack to unveil a list of devices that are expected to be updated to the latest Android 7.0 Nougat software. One thing to know is that this list is not the final product and at some point in future, more devices will be included in the update. Furthermore, T-Mobile was careful enough not to go into specific date details so as to avoid any pressures when it comes to beating deadlines and such stuff.
Nevertheless, those who rock the newest members of Samsung Galaxy flagships, namely the Galaxy Note 7, Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge should be guaranteed of an Android 7.0 Nougat update soon. The story is the same for those using last year’s Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and the larger Galaxy S6 Edge+. The Galaxy Note 5 is not left behind either, but this initial list has no place for the 2014 releases, which include the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S5. But as noted, more devices are expected to join the list with time, but this doesn’t guarantee that handsets that are over two years old will make up the cut, regardless of how capable they might seem to be to the holder.
T-Mobile did not just share details of the most popular smartphone maker in the world, but the carrier also took time to update those using HTC handsets, but it only talked about the newer HTC 10 and last year’s HTC One M9. HTC itself has promised that these two phones, alongside the mid-range HTC One A9, will receive Android 7.0 Nougat update sometime this year.
Since there is no definite timescale, we’ll keep following up the matter and let you know when exactly T-Mobile and other carriers plan on pushing out Android 7.0 Nougat. Furthermore, we’ll follow up the updates on the list of devices to be updated with the OS and bring you up to speed. Keep following us.

Unfortunately, you can’t trust the carriers to give you the updates — or properly enable them. For instance, the S7 has been out now for some time, and Verizon still hasn’t enabled the FM radio inside the phone. Other carriers have, so there’s no problem with the hardware or the OS — it’s just Verizon not taking care of its customers with S7 phones. It’s a heck of a thing to pay that much money for a phone and have the carrier cripple it. With behavior like that, who knows what Verizon will do with (or to!) Nougat.
